Kate Upton gets down and dirty on Twitter to defend her man

Publish date:

We'll say this about Kate Upton: She stands by her man. After hearing news today that fiance (and Detroit Tigers pitcher) Justin Verlander did not win the Cy Young Award, Kate took to Twitter and unleashed the fire:

The "Rick" that Kate is referring to is Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello, who won the award in a close race. Kate and Justin have been engaged since March but went public with the news at the Met Gala last May. 

And while Rick Porcello may have won this award, Justin Verlander is the real winner because of his future wife. Would you want to mess with this?
